30+ Graduate Vacancies: Trainee Accountants (London & South East)
Accountancy offers a rewarding career with excellent salaries and huge potential for career progression.
Each year we have approximately 30 vacancies for graduate trainees across a range of Chartered Accountancy firms based in London and the South East. This means when you apply through us, you’re not just applying to one firm of Chartered Accountants, you’re applying to many.
The firms of Chartered Accountants with which we offer graduate programmes are: Alliotts, Brebners, Citroen Wells, Gerald Edelman, Knox Cropper, Nyman Libson Paul, Rayner Essex and Shipleys
We offer two intakes annually – January and September – and accept applications year-round.
Our graduate programme is more than just a job. It’s a career path!
Our graduate programme provides you with a 3-year training contract with one of the firms of Chartered Accountants for which we recruit. Our graduate programme will provide you with a wide range of practical experience while studying for your professional accountancy examinations; all of which leads to the ICAEW (ACA) Chartered Accountant qualification.
Add to this the opportunities and varied lifestyle that working in the South East has to offer and it all adds up to a very rewarding opportunity.
You will be given paid study leave and we also cover the costs of all your accountancy courses and examinations (for first attempts).
You will be provided with support and mentoring to assist you with the ACA exams, as well as being able to tap into advice from trainees who are further on in their studies. This wide range of support means that we have a good track record of students passing all their exams first-time.
The firms we recruit for range from 4-19 partners in size, meaning there is huge scope for you to progress within the firm. What’s more, you will have exposure to a wide range of assignments with clients of all sizes in various industry sectors. You will be given responsibility from an early stage and benefit from involvement from the firm’s partners, who will take a direct interest in your development and support you through your training. Indeed, many of our trainees have gone on to become senior managers and partners themselves.
Minimum entry requirements
We are looking for mature, numerate and intelligent students who are willing to work hard, study hard and play hard. Above all, you will need to have the flexibility to adapt to a variety of challenging situations and the communication skills to express ideas and deal with clients at all levels.
You will need:
- 2:2 degree or above in ANY subject.
- A minimum of 300 UCAS points (old UCAS tariff) or 120 UCAS points (new UCAS tariff) or equivalents, from your top three grades (first attempts only). AS levels and General Studies are not accepted.
- GCSE English Language, grade C or above.
- GCSE Maths, grade B or above.
Don’t forget that your academic qualifications are not enough on their own. We’re looking for articulate, confident, intelligent graduates with a range of transferable skills. Accountancy is a people-focused profession. Numeracy is expected, but you must also be able to communicate confidently with colleagues and clients, as well as being able to organise yourself and your workload; balance the competing demands on your time; and take personal responsibility for the development of your career.
If you have all this and are looking for a challenging and rewarding career, please apply today.
